Is an essential attribute of a beautiful diamond and has 2 components; brightness and contrast. Bright diamonds return lots of light from the surroundings back to an observer. If light from above leaks out the back of a diamond, or its facets are not symmetrical or optimally shaped, naturally it has less brightness. To be brilliant, a diamond also needs to have contrast, and when it moves it should intensely sparkle. For maximum brilliance, every facet of a diamond should be professionally polished after the cutting process.

One of the most defining characteristics of a diamond is its cut. While high grades of color, clarity, and carat weight affect a diamond, it's the cut that determines the symmetry of the stone's facets, its overall proportions, and its ability to reflect light. An expertly cut diamond will achieve high levels of brilliance, sparkle, and durability. For more information and cut types, see The Four C's.
